It’s been over 100 years since the first IWD and we’ve come a long way in creating gender workplace equality – but we still have a long way to go. In 2020, gender inequalities continue to limit the ability of both men and women to be respected and to contribute at work and at home.

In this infographic we highlight some examples of when and how this can happen.
